Lessons from Salisbury

Today I made my second trip to my company’s other office in Salisbury in as many months, this time for our (semi) quarterly company-wide “town hall.”

Every time I go to Salisbury I learn something new. Sometimes it’s about the hospitality industry. Sometimes it’s about software. And sometimes it’s about the deep mysteries surrounding this little thing we call life. Here are just a few things I learned from Salisbury today:

1. Caffeine is a privilege, not a right:

Coffee is for sales people on PACE...

This lesson is reason #4,256 why I will never, ever go into sales. It’s also the official photo of the day, mostly because it sums up our VP of Sales so well.

2. There are actually people out there who are lazier than me:

3. People actually read that newsletter I write…as long as it’s about them:

4. Playing ping pong with drunk people is fun:

Hopefully I’ve gained enough wisdom today to last me a few months before I’m needed back in the ‘bury.
